As i couldn't complete his first Potm since i didn't have the coins at that point , i did this Sbc even though its very expensive and untradable. Yes maybe its not the best value for coin wise! but with these stats on a player you're gonna use for 500+ games. i think its worth it and good god he delivered!
- The following review is based on 46 games with the card resulting in 48 goals and 45 assists in a 2.5 million coins worth of Bundesliga , EPL , league1 and laliga Hybrid.
since i had the 87 IF card i already knew this lad fits my playstyle. but good god you cant even compare the 2 cards!
i started using him as a left striker in a 18.104.22.168.2 (2) since stamina wise he lasts all game there, and he was already one of the best Strikers I've had! but i felt his playmaking and longshot abilities go to waste there! so i moved him up to Cam and boom. Zola who? Messi who? Guys! he is the best cam for under 2mil hands down! Yes you gotta take him out at 80th , but the guy causes destruction at Cam! i got IF sane and TIF Werner as STs. those through balls man!
- lets get to the Pros now
Pace : I use hunter on him so... yep , you guessed it right! hes FAST!
Shooting : Elite tier! up there with the bests of the game! this guys doesn't miss what so ever! i knew 92 ought to be impressive , but some shots will still surprise you
long shots : Reus hast the best outside the box finesses in this game. I've tried them all , messi is the closest to him. but Reus is just on another level! I've hit red timed shots and they still hit top bins with such power and speed the goalie just doesn't have a chance! honestly his finesse shots are just unfair!
Passing: sublime! there's an inch of opening in the defense? that's exactly where his passes will go!
Dribbling : Amazing! he can turn defenders left and right! not up there with Messi , Neymar , Best , Ronaldinho tho. theres nothing there to let you down, but its just not a solid 10/10
Ball Control : 10/10! whether its a first touch, close control, bad passes when he is not perfectly balanced, the ball isnt getting away from his feet what so ever.
4* Combo : always nice to have
Med/Med : its actually a pro! since the stamina ain't that great you don't want him running like crazy! he hovers the Cam position waiting to get a ball and start his magic!
Positioning: his movement on 1-2 s and offensive runs sometimes make me feel he has high attacking workrate. just makes the right run at the right time!
Stamina : as a Cam , needs to be subbed out at around the 80s , as a ST , played 120 mins with some juice on him left!
Price / being untradable
SBC requirement : really EA? no special reus?
Strength is NOT a con , he does have some fight in him. not high enough to be a pro tho. definitely not a con
Heading and jumping can be a con if you intend to use him as a ST , but for a Cam , again , no problem.
- Thank you for reading this Long Review, I thought since he is so expensive and untradable , some might actually want a more in depth and detailed review to set up their minds.
Suggesting whether to go for him or not... i can't really give you a straight answer. i can say he is beastly , but if your team isn't at least worth 3-4 million coins , spending 800k on an untradable might not be the best idea! the packs i got back got me maybe 75k of the cost back so... don't count on the packs too much
Corners and Freekicks
Positioning and movement
Med/Med WRs stamina wise
okay, so first of all, sorry for my bad english.
Where do i start...
Marco Reus is until now the best card i've ever played in this game! With the winter upgrade he ist much stronger than before.
So we start with his pace:
Its good. He felts fast and its enough to run through the defenders...
puuuh, .. with Engine he is so limber!!! Composure 89 is pretty nice and yeah, his dribbling ist sooooo nice!
Shooting & passing:
one word. UNBELIEVABLE - a shoot in the penalty are is a safe goal! every pass finds his companion.
After the winter upgrade he ist sooooo strong, its a bit unreal, because in real life he is never soo big haha..
with 83 strength he makes a lot of interceptions !! 87 Jumping is good but against a normally defender he has no chance to win a header, but if he has space he can score some headers.
Everyone who doesnt complete this SBC is an idiot... This card for the price of 800k... a JOKE.
He brings me this week into Elite 1, first time in my life.
GOODYBE MY FRIENDS, hope you enjoy the bad english hahaha..
The first Reus (POTM) I missed, so I had to do this one because of the squad that I am using for fut champs. I did this one in only a few minutes an I played him like no one other. I already played more then 50 games and in the first few games I thought, what a bad buy. I use him at center cam in a 4-2-3-1 formation.
His shooting is not from this world, every shot is on target and his volley is so OP, its not funny for your opponent. But as i mention at first, you have to find your way with him. I tried him at every cam position and as a striker but in the center with the right chem style it is becoming a beast, especially in combination with flashback Gotze and futmas Firmino. He is fast and is o so good on the ball.
Chem style I am using at this moment is marksman, and at first I used a maestro. I switched because of his physical.
My team with the players from right to left: (formation: 4-2-3-1)
- Dani Alves (Flasback)
- Thiago Silva
- Fabino (RTTF)
- Goretzka (OTW)
- Bobby Firmino (futmas)
- Reus (POTM (90 skill))
- Gotze (flashback)
- Rivaldo (middle one)
